Spice Up Your Documents With CopyPasteCharacters

April 16, 2015

Have you ever seen documents or emails where someone has “somehow” inserted special characters or symbols in the document and you are wondering, “Where are these symbols on the keyboard?”. These symbols or characters are referred to in the geek world as “alt codes”. These symbols and characters are keyboard generated by pressing the ALT key in combination with numbers on the NUMBER PAD (on your keyboard). I recently posted an article about “ALT codes”, titled, “Using the Alt Key on your Keyboard to Make Special Characters” that leads you to a good visual source on how to apply these codes.

The problem you run into with these codes, without a visual reference, is remembering what “ALT” keys to apply to generate a symbol (or character).  Recently I found a simple cloud based solution that specializes in allowing you to easily copy and paste ALT code type symbols (and characters) into documents, emails, forums, etc…  The site is called CopyPasteCharacter.com.

CopyPasteCharacter.com

Once you get to the site you will find an array of various symbols (and characters) and if you open up an account you can even save and create your own character set. To use a character, you simply “left mouse click” on a symbol (or character) and the symbol (or character) will automatically be copied to the clipboard on your computer. At that point, what I do is left mouse click, select “paste” from the menu and the symbol (or character) will be inserted into the document. ❤

Microsoft Office Online and Dropbox Are Shaking Hands

April 11, 2015

If you follow the tech news you will know that Microsoft and Dropbox had earlier established a partnership with a goal to make it easier to work with your Microsoft Office applications from Dropbox. This goal is now to the point where the integration between Dropbox on the web and Office Online is a reality.

Now, when working in Office Online you can add your Dropbox account to easily browse, open and edit Office files with Office Online. You can also create new files in Office Online, and save them directly to your Dropbox.

The same integration is available from Dropbox in a web browser. You can now access Office Online directly from the file you are viewing. Just click the Open button when you’re previewing a Word, PowerPoint or Excel file from Dropbox on the web, and you can edit the file right from your browser using Office Online.

NEW Version of Start.me

April 2, 2015

If you are into customizing your own homepage in your browser or wish you had the means to customize your homepage, I encourage you to take a look at start.me. I have been using start.me for over a year now and would be lost without it. It has become my main launching point to everything I do on the internet. This online application gives you the ability create a personal startpage (completely ad free) with your most important bookmarks, RSS feeds and even widgets.  I also like the fact that start.me is very tablet and smartphone friendly.

Start.me

Start.me is totally customizable (with background images of your choice) and continues to improve and get better. I just learned today when I launched Start.me in my browser that a new version has been released that features a new logo, new pages menu, availability of custom icons for bookmarks, transparency for widgets, new flow to adding bookmarks, and a new upload feature to adding images such as using copying and paste.

If interested in using start.me — click here — . I think you will find that this application gives you a way to become more organized and efficient when using the internet.

Three Must Have Diagnostic Tools by Windows Sysinternals

March 11, 2015

Windows Sysinternals is host to numerous advanced system utilities and technical information that is available (for FREE) to help you manage, troubleshoot and diagnose your Windows systems and applications. There are three of their utilities that I consider as “must have” utilities; and, the beauty of these three is that you can run them live from Sysinternals.

BgInfo – Displays relevant information about a Windows computer on the desktop’s background, such as the computer name, IP address, service pack version, and more. You can edit any field as well as the font and background colors, and can place it in your startup folder so that it runs every boot, or even configure it to display as the background for the logon screen. By default when you first run BgInfo it will display more than what is actually being shown in the screenshot and is very useful in getting good baseline visual information about any Windows based computer you may be troubleshooting.

BGinfo

Autoruns – Shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and when you start various built-in Windows applications like Internet Explorer, Explorer and media players. These programs and drivers include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. Autoruns reports Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond other autostart utilities.

Autoruns

Process Explorer – Shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded AND isuseful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.

 Process Explorer

Extend The Functionality Of Evernote With CardDesk

February 20, 2015

If you are an Evernote user you may want to take a look at the new cloud app called CardDesk (which is currently in Beta). Signup for the account at CardDesk is FREE and you have nothing to lose.

CardDesk

In a nutshell CardDesk is a web application that ties in nicely with your Evernote account to give you a visual desktop organizer for your Evernote notes. The notes give the appearance of index cards that can be moved around and arranged on any number of virtual screens or desktops (where you can select from different backgrounds). You can edit a note by double clicking on the header of the note.  Nice concept…

What is meant by “The Cloud” or “Cloud Computing”

February 16, 2015

I often have people ask me; “What is the cloud or what is cloud computing?”. This past week at work I received a Google Gram (from Google) in my workplace email that really summed it up very nicely…

cloud image

Cloud Computing” is the use of the internet to run applications or store data. Until recently, most software programs ran on your personal computer. Cloud computing changes that: programs run on a remote server (or servers), accessed by (but not stored on) your computer. Web-based email = cloud computing. Google Apps = cloud computing. Facebook = cloud computing.

In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet.
